With all our fundraising events being cancelled, WE HAVE LAUNCHED AN ON-LINE STORE! Shop and support critters all at the same time! Check back often as there are new items to come. 

We believe in social distancing so sadly all volunteer projects, group work days, vending events and fundraising events are on hold.

Donations are almost non-existent and we don’t expect that to improve in these times of uncertainty. If you are able, we would really appreciate your help!  If you're willing and able, please visit our How to Help for ways you can support us.

We are grateful for all the happy, rescued critters that have taught us to live in the moment. That just being safe, healthy, and enjoying snacks is pretty much the best life ever!  From our family to yours, take care!

Until we can safely gather again, please follow us on Facebook @TheAssMenagerie and Instagram @ass.menagerie !
